Killing leads to short duration of life.

Theft leads to lacking possessions and enjoyments.

Sexual misconduct leads to much enmity.

Lying leads to being maligned by others.

Slander causes friends to turn against me.

Harsh words ripen as hearing unpleasant statements.

Frivolous speech ripens as being disregarded by others.

Covetousness leads to disappointment.

Malice ripens as pain and fear.

Wrong views ripen as stupidity and ignorance.
